What defines a family car... Is it the extensive safety features, driver aids, necessity for cargo space? Well then I'm afraid to say it, but both could be a strong "family car" or "woman's car" candidate. Sadly, I think the letter "M" in automotive terms has evolved away from a it's nimble performance and pure driving experience roots to join the other silly descriptions (SS, GT, SVT, AMG) that are lumbering beasts. If I ever see BMW bring out a //M with 6 cylinders, N/A high revs around 300 hp, less then 3000 lbs... my jaw will drop and my feelings will surely change!
The major difference between my 318is and an e30 M3 is that the noises come from the engine and not the passengers
